What are your little ones going as for Halloween?  Did you buy Halloween costumes from Amazon this year?  I bought a couple things for my kiddos.  Amazon has some great deals and if you Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial, shipping is FREE, plus you get lots of other perks like TONS of thousands of movies and TV shows streamed to your device (all the Halloween classics like Halloween, Carrie and so much more!) and you can borrow books for your Kindle instead of having to buy them!
I'll tell you about the costumes I got for my kiddos in a minute but first, here are some of the top selling costumes on Amazon this year!
Captain America
Kylo Ren
Harley Quinn
My three year old wanted to be the Little Mermaid, and I found this costume to be perfect because it is long sleeved, our Halloween is generally expected to be a chilly night.

Baby Katie is going as a black cat, here's the hat she's wearing!

The older 2 are more DIY. I can't say much more about them yet. I'll share pics soon so make sure to FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM to see more about our costumes for Halloween!
What costumes did you get for your little ones this year?  Tell me in a comment below!

 Where is your next family vacation going to be? Are you planning a family trip to Chicago?

This is a sponsored post from Mums The Word Network and The Stork OTC. Latched On Mom was compensated in exchange for sharing information regarding this product. All thoughts and experiences expressed are of my own. For more information please see my full disclosure.
If you're trying to get pregnant, there is a new product available that I believe is worth a try because it is backed with medical studies and is FDA cleared for over-the-counter use. The Stork OTC is an at-home cervical cap insemination medical device.  I am happy to share information regarding this product because it looks great for families that are trying to conceive as naturally as possible without extra hassle.
 "Take a shortcut on the road to conception with the Stork OTC Home Conception Device. No Shots. No Scans. No Prescriptions. No Procedures. Because trying to get pregnant is challenging enough. Trying to get pregnant is an intimate matter. Another reason we designed the Stork OTC to be used at home. Take control of your pathway to parenthood with the Stork OTC. A drug-free option in the next step towards conception The Stork OTC assists you in your chances of getting pregnant. No doctor’s appointments. No prescriptions. No drugs. No brainer."
This device is used during intercourse, to aid the sperm in getting as close to the cervix as possible during your fertile window. It includes a Conceptacle- a condom-like sheath and a cervical cap.
The Stork OTC is comparable to IUI success rates according to studies. 
"The Stork OTC updates an established technique, cervical cap insemination (CCI), which has a proven success rate of 10-20% (by comparison, IUI has a success rate of approximately 10-20%). CCI has been available by prescription, in clinical settings, for decades, but until now had never been adapted and FDA-cleared for home use, without a prescription."
Studies demonstrating the effectiveness of cervical cap insemination:
-  "The cervical cap for home artificial insemination."
-  "Therapeutic donor insemination: A prospective randomized trial of fresh versus frozen sperm."
And here is a summary of the studies conducted to document safe and effective use of The Stork OTC.
Easy to follow instructions are included and an instructional video is available online at While The Stork OTC is designed for use without a healthcare provider, one may be consulted if desired. The device is available online and now can be also purchased at select retailers over the counter! It is available at Walgreens, located in the family planning section next to ovulation test kits.  I suggest to call your local store ahead of time to make sure they carry it.  You can get the Stork OTC in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the United States.
I have a post 5 Signs You Are Ovulating & More TTC Tips on which I explain how I had to carefully track my ovulation in order to get pregnant, and it worked well for us, we conceived even earlier than anticipated!  If I had known about this product at that time, I would have tried it immediately!  I believe the Stork OTC is really a product worth giving a try. We have decided that we are no longer going to be actively TTC, however there are many couples who have to do more than just track ovulation.  My friend Becky shares her experience and how she thinks the Stork OTC will be beneficial.
"With our first child, we were TTC for approximately two years. During this time we partnered with a reproductive endocrinologist and went through many tests, procedures, and multiple fertility medications. After the third fully monitored IUI cycle on injectables, we finally conceived. Now that our daughter is about a year and a half old, we have decided we would like to add to our family. Once we began actively trying again, the anxiety tied to fertility issues came flooding back immediately. I am focused daily on what my basal body temperature is, my cervical position, mucus, etc. With a reproductive endocrinology appointment on the horizon to make plans for an IUI, we could not have discovered The Stork OTC  at a better time. I'm so excited to be able to try a product that is FDA approved and studies have shown that it can be just as effective as IUI. I'm extremely hopeful that this product may help us avoid medications and costly treatments. Best of all, we'll be able to do this in the comfort of our own home vs creating a child in a hospital. I'm looking forward to trying this!"
Here are a couple success stories!
Lauren and Nick – TTC for 2+ Years

Lauren and Nick had tried for 2 years to conceive. They successfully conceived using the Stork OTC, timed with tracking ovulation on ovulation tests. Their twin girls were born at the end of 2015.
Ashley – TTC 3+ Years, Unexplained, Secondary Infertility. Baby due February 2017
"My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 years with the help of an RE, after undergoing lots of treatments and tests we fell into the “unexplained” category along with a low sperm morphology count. National Infertility Awareness Week I reached out to review the Stork because I had been reading about it and was intrigued to see maybe if it would work for us and it is definitely more cost efficient. We were averaging $700 a month for IUI and injectable medication versus $80-90 at the store. At first I was a little overwhelmed with the instructions because they were so long and detailed, but once I fully grasped the concept we were good to go. The only downside for us was how uncomfortable the “condom sheath” was to my husband (I have read that some didn’t use it but instead just put the sperm inside of the cup afterwards). On ovulation night we used the 1st stork with the condom sheath and I kept in for about 5 hours, might I add there was no discomfort at all. The next night we used the 2nd stork, this time hubby just put his sperm in the cup and I left it in for about 4 hours. Afterwards, we said our prayers and hoped this might work for us. On 10 DPO we received a super duper faint positive and I almost thought I was just seeing stuff. The next morning, I tested again and saw a faint line and took a digital which said “YES” best word I could have ever seen. I am without a doubt certain the Stork OTC helped us in our long 3-year journey! We went to the Dr. today and saw our baby via ultrasound and just lost it for that we are both forever grateful and thankful to the Stork for helping us in our journey!!"
